as the obama administration's failure to negotiate a status forces agreement with iraq to allow u.s. forces to stay there, and iraq has gone downhill. that's the narrative. there's also bengazy, and there's sort of a -- there's been building this sense among republicans that the obama administration is not strong enough on counterterrorism, is not tough enough, somehow is hiding its ineptness, and i think that's what's behind this, and it's all going to come out, again, with something we haven't talked about yet, which is the nomination of john brennan, the cia director. here's a guy who was pulled back from being nominated four years ago because of his alleged ties to torture and interrogation techniqu techniques. he was george bush's counterterrorism guy. it comes with a lot of baggage. as dave wood outlines, there are reasons for, and there are reasons why chuck hagel's potential fom nation is problematic for the white house. there's also when you sort of read the palace intrigue, read about the palace intrigue, get into the palace intrigue, there's this notion that president obama likes

deportations, you can see the total so far during the obama administration, 1.5 million. for the entirity of the bush administration, two terms in office, we saw about two million deportations. and then in 2012 alone, nearly -- more than, rather, 400,000 immigrants deported, which is a record high. our next phone call is from mark in new jersey, republican. hi, mark. caller: good morning. i'm also a municipal chair here for the republican committee. i'm also going to be running for the state republican committee. i think the idea given immigration reform is absurd. we look at all the construction work there's these people have devalued over the years. who compensates them? we talk about equality and everything else and helping people. these illegal immigrants have destroyed more african-american communities because of the lack of jabs being taken by these people. they're devaluing our weages. you look at the drug problems that are across the country that these people are transporting, and then you want to give them amnesty and make them legal citizens? they've criminals. they've destroyed

crucial moment in the obama administration. perhaps the most important legislation they'll ever propose. because gun laws do work. studies have shown firearm deaths are significantly lower in states with stricter gun legislation. this map shows the ten states with the strongest gun laws and the ten with the lowest gun death rates. the correlation the seven states in green is strong. banning assault weapons, requiring trigger locks, and mandating safe storage works. the nra would like you to believe no legislation woot help. no one obvious law could have stopped adam lanza but we can make our world safer. public policy is meant to be aspir rational, to try to make the world better. the white house knows it just as it knows the right has gone far extreme on this, so far into second amendment absolutism, if it's not any weapon anywhere they will lead you down the

that the obama administration might stop the easy sale of the scariest guns to the scariest people has aroused the slippery slope crowd. these cousins of the grassy knoll folks believe that any limit on the wide open market for guns and ammo threatens their own hardware. any reasonable action by the american people to stop the carrage is to these paranoids the first unfaltering step to mass confiscation of everything from shoth guns to daisy rifles. well, tonight we let you hear from the craziest of the crazies. my question, are the regular gun owners of this country, the people who go out and hunt in hunting season, the people who shoot skeet or simply like to pack their own bullets, regular gun enthusiasts, are they going to listen to these nut cases or joe biden when he offers proposals next week on background checks and high capacity magazines? who are the people that are going to decide this issue? i mean the gun owners going to go with, the wild bunch or the town posse? david corn is you what bureau chief for "mother jones." joy reid is managing editor of the grio. most are msnbc analyst

institute says the obama administration spent $18 billion on immigration enforcement last fiscal year and that amount, get this, is more than the budgets than all other federal law enforcement agencies combined. nonpartisan think tank focuses on global immigration issues and the report found that u.s. government has spent more than $187 billion on immigration enforcement laws since 1986 and since then, there have been more immigration-related criminal prosecutions than cases generated by the justice department. npi concludes because of the money spent the actions taken and the case volume, it is fair to say the obama administration has made immigration enforcement its highest criminal law enforcement priority. >>> the administration's economic priority right now is the raising of the debt ceiling. u.s. has gotta lift it by the end of february or early march or else it will default on its fiscal obligations. this should be a routine exercise but republicans once again are threatening to hold the debt limit increase hostage in exchange for spending cuts which happened back in august of
big debate playing out in washington over the obama administration's efforts to overhaul the nation's gun laws. we heard some of that this morning. here is the president addressing this issue during a white house news conference, we mentioned, moments ago. >> what you can count on is that the things that i've said in the past, the belief that we have to have stronger background checks, that we could do a much better job in terms of keeping these magazine clips with high capacity out of the hands of folks who shouldn't have them, an assault weapons ban that's meaningful that those are things i continue to believe make sense. >> megyn: new york senator chuck schumer is going a step further than the administration. now calling on wal-mart and other retailers to suspend sales of some types of weapons that are now perfectly legal until washington can come up with a new gun control policy. requests like that may be adding to the concern from gun owners as several gun shows around the country report record turnout. in fact, the president was asked about the growing number of gun sales. he
the debt ceiling? we're approaching that. we heard from the obama administration they have no backup plan if congress does not raise the debt ceiling, and the head of the house republican conference kathy mcmorris rogers says i think it's possible we should shut down the government to make sure the president understands we're serious. what do you think of that kind of talk? >> that's a terrible statement to make. shutting down government is different. now, we've got to be clear here. there's shutting down government in a budget fight. that's one thing. that's okay you can argue about that. the debt ceiling however is messing around with the full faith and credit of the united states. it would be bad for the economy when we played that game of russian roulette back in august of 2011. you could see the economy decline. you could see job creation going away. i'm with newt gingrich on this one. newt gingrich had taken a strong position that we should not use, that the republicans should not use the debt ceiling as leverage in this cutting spending. let's use the continuing

deportations, you can see the total so far during the obama administration, 1.5 million. for the entirety of the bush administration, two terms in office, we saw about two million deportations. and then in 2012 alone, nearly -- more than, rather, 400,000 immigrants deported, which is a record high. our next phone call is from mark in new jersey, republican. hi, mark. caller: good morning. i'm also a municipal chair here -- >> more of this in an hour of video library at c-span.org. would take you now live to president obama and his choice for treasury secretary. >> a little more than four years ago i stood with mr. tim geithner, the first nominee to my cabinet. we were two months into the financial crisis. the stock market had cratered. the stock market -- bank after bank was on the verge of collapse. worst of all, more than 800,000 americans would lose their jobs in just that month. at the bottom was probably not yet in sight. i could not blame tim when he told me he was not the right guy for the job. [laughter] extensivews that tim's experience with economic policy made him eminently qua
's legacy will loom large over the obama administration and the american economy for years to come. starting with his role as head of the new york federal reserve, he was pivotal is the rescue regime and the ugly glory. he's been a lightning rod for criticism and apparent unwillingness to hold wall street accountable for the financial crash. those choices have reprecushions to day for the millions of workers and borrowers. he rescued the giant aig was is appreciate fwhad company that aig is airing commercials thanking american people for their generous assistance. >> we're a leading global company in america. >> we paid every dollar america lent to us. >> everything plus a profit of more than $22 billion. >> for the american people. >> thank you, america. >> not everyone at aig, however, is to grateful. the company's former chairman hank greenberg is suing the federal government for making the terms of the bailout too restrictive. aig considered joining a lawsuit this week before declining. the suit and aig's resurgence after the rescue engineered by geithner are a reminder that we're all li
. >> this is interesting. it is certainly true that the obama administration has been among the harshest on an external whistle-blowers. however, the obama administration has been -- especially this new administration which managed to cram through a whistle-blower protection act and expand it for government whistleblowers, is offering protections they have not had for decades. so he wants them, whistle- blowers, to be able to work without retaliation within the system. he is very much opposed to information being released willy-nilly by people inside that just ended all over the world. we interviewed assange right after the wikileaks issue, he believes that all information should be there, regardless of the possibility of innocent victims. he is a person who believes that, no matter what the consequences are, the information should be out there. a lot of the wikileaks stuff was pretty niggly stuff, people having affairs or whatever. some of it was big stuff, for sure. some of it was important stuff. the stuff that made a difference when people knew about it was when he partnered with a guardian, a bunc
with reuters. i've wanted to ask a question about apis relationship with the obama administration. i know, well, before the election, you said that it seemed like they were kind of being more, or reaching out more to the oil and gas industry compared to the start of the administration. are using more of that now that the reelection has happened, are you seeing that there's more outreach or that you're able to get your messages across to the administration? what are hearing from them? and then also i wanted to know, you talked about expanding, but with the reelection of the obama administration, it would seem like that's pretty much off the table, you know, the five year plan is already done for offshore. they don't seem to be showing any movement towards expanding access, so is there some type of deal i could be made or how would or how would that happen speak with a lot of questions. let me try to remember them all and respond accordingly. first of all there's lots of opportunity to change policy, to encourage the development of u.s. resource. it does and i'll have to occur within the administ
